So Many Books...

My name is Jessica. I'm 32. I love to get lost in a good book. I generally read Christian and classic literature, but will read outside of those genres as well. I also read non-fiction.

Currently reading

Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die
John Piper
Knowing Scripture
R.C. Sproul, J.I. Packer
In Christ Alone: Living the Gospel Centered Life - Sinclair B. Ferguson

    What does the Bible really say about Jesus? What role does He play in our salvation and faith? Was it the act of the Cross, or is there more to it? What does it mean that Jesus is the same “yesterday, today, and forever?” In this book, Ferguson illustrates why Christ alone is sufficient for our faith by taking a look at scripture and what it says about Jesus.

 

     Organized into topical sections, In Christ Alone can be used for Bible study. The chapters, however, are short enough that the book could be read daily as a devotional to stay centered on Christ each day. Scripture is clearly cited when used or discussed, and it remains the main focus through the entire book. If you’re looking for a book that explains what the Bible says about Jesus, this is it.

 

     There were times where the flow or tone felt a little off to me, style-wise, but that could easily be a personal preference, and it doesn’t reduce the value of the contents at all. But it’s the reason I give it 4 out of 5 stars instead of the full 5.

 

     I was given a free PDF copy of this book from Reformation Trust in exchange for an honest review.
